Bring your dogs!   Bring your friends!   Be our guest for a day afield!

Remember how bird hunting used to be? A trip to the country to Cousin "What's-his-name's" place - he knew where seven coveys could be found. He had a young pointer chained in the back yard that would climb over the tail gate for a day hunting quail. After a stop at the country store for a drink and some crackers, your blood was boiling for a day's hunt. Your dog flushed out some birds before you even loaded your gun.

Sound familiar? Then you're well aware of the type of hunting we are trying to preserve at Devil's Rib. Whether you're just a beginner or a "well broke" hunter, we offer woods and fields suited for all. Our aim is to ensure the birds you hunt and the cover you hunt them in are as challenging as possible.

Hunters may use their own dogs if they choose or be guided over well-trained pointers and setters. We have ideal hunting conditions for training young dogs as well. Individuals booking the hunt will be financially responsible in the event any of our dogs are killed or wounded on guided hunts.

There are no bag limits, and the preserve season runs October 1 - March 31.

A valid North Carolina hunting license OR controlled hunting preserve permit is required. Hunters ages 16 or younger must have proof of completion of hunter safety course. Orange hats or vests are required for all hunters. Hunt accommodations are available - please inquire at the time of booking. Hunters who engage in unsafe hunting practices in the field may be subject to discontinuation of hunts, cancellation of future hunts, and/or fees for damaged property.

Morning and afternoon hunts are available Monday through Saturday by appointment only. Call us today to book your hunt!

At Devil's Rib Preserve, our aim is to closely simulate wild bird hunting on our farm and woodland. Our lively birds and varied natural covers will provide hours of relaxing and challenging outdoor enjoyment. We cordially invite you to bring your dogs and your friends and be our guest for a day afield. Corporations are welcome!
